StatQuest with Josh Starmer
p-hacking is the misuse and abuse of p-values and results in being fooled by false positives. Some forms of p-hacking are obvious, but other are much more subtle. In this video, we talk about two forms of p-hacking and how to avoid them.

NOTE: This StatQuest assumes that you are already familiar with p-values, if not check out:
